Occupational Safety and Health and Chemical Hazards Sectional Committee, CHD 8 


This Code was adopted by the Bureau of Indian Standards, after the draft finalized by the Occupational Safety and 
Health and Chemical Hazards Sectional Committee had been approved by the Chemical Division Council. 

Stable bleaching powder (SBP) is a white or nearly white powder, that is, usually a mixture of calcium hypochlorite 
calcium chloride hypochlorite, calcium chloride and calcium hydroxide. It is also called chloride of lime and is prepared 
by reacting calcium hydroxide or slaked lime with chlorine gas. SEP contains approximately 37 percent available 

It is used as a strong bleaching agent for paper and textiles, as a disinfectant, algicide, bactericide, deodorant, potable 
water purification, disinfectant for swimming pools, etc.

4.3 Chemical Properties 

4.3.1 Reactivity 

Hypochlorites yield hypochlorous acid (HOCl) when 
treated with stoichiometric amount of acid and are 
converted to Cl^ when excess hydrochloric acid is used. 
They react quantitatively in acid media with iodide 
liberating iodine and with hydrogen peroxide (H^O^) 
liberating oxygen. 

The stability of SB? is a function of its moisture, time and 
impurity content as well as the temperature and humidity 
at which it is stored. It rapidly decomposes on exposure to 
air and may decompose violently, if exposed to heat or 
direct sunlight. It is thermally unstable and decomposes 
above 1 70°C giving different reaction products. SBP reacts 
vigorously with nitromethane, reducing materials and 
react with sulphur and violently with organic matter 
above lOOX. 

4.3.2 Hazardous Decomposition Products 

SBP reacts with water or steam to produce toxic and

corrosive fumes of chlorine. Above 170°C, it undergoes 
exothermic decomposition forming calcium chloride and 
releasing oxygen. Traces of water may initiate the reaction. 
A rapid exothermic decomposition above 175^C releases 
oxygen and chlorine. 

4.3.3 Incompatibilities 

Calcium hypochlorite is a strong oxidizer. It reacts with 
water and acids giving off chlorine gas, forms explosive 
compounds with ammonia and amines. In compatible with 
organic materials, nitrogen compounds and combustible 
materials. In the presence of moisture, it is corrosive to 
most of the metals, 

4.4 Fire and Explosion Properties 

4.4.1 It is a powerful oxidizing agent. Not combustible, 
but supports combustion of other materials. Decomposes 
violently upon heating liberating oxygen, hence ftieling 
any fire. It reacts with organic materials can readily ignite 
combustible materials. Decompositions can be rapid and 
violent upon contact with incompatible materials and on 

4.4.2 Sealed containers of SBP may rupture when heated. 
An explosion may occur if either a carbon tetrachloride or 
a dry ammonium compound fire extinguisher is used to 
extinguish a fire. 

4.5 Corrosion Properties

5.1.2 Peak Limitation 

A ceiling concentration that should not be exceeded over 
a measurement period which should be as short as possible 
but not exceeding 15 min. These exposure standards are 
guides to be used in the control of occupational health 
hazards. Exposure standards should not be used as fine 
dividing lines between safe and dangerous concentrations 
of chemicals. They are not a measure of relative toxicity. 

5.2 Routes of Entry 

Inhalation, ingestion, eyes and skin. 

5.3 Health Effects 

5.3.1 Inhalation 

Dusts of chlorine (decomposition product) are corrosive 
to the respiratory tract. It is destructive to tissues of 
mucous membrane and upper respiratory tract. Symptoms 
may include burning sensation, coughing, wheezing, 
laryngitis, shortness of breath, headache, nausea and 
vomiting. Inhalation may be fatal as a result of spasm 
inflammation and edema of the larynx and bronchi, 
chemical pneumonitis and pulmonary edema. 

5.3.2 Chronic Exposure 

Repeated exposures to calcmm hypochlorite may cause 
bronchitis to develop with cough and/or shortness of 

5.3.3 Ingestion 

Swallowing may result in gastrointestinal corrosion causing 
severe pain, nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea, inflammation 
of mouth and oesophagus. Large doses may be fatal, 

5.3.4 Skin and Eye Contact 

SBP is not appreciably irritating to skin in the diy form. 
Repeated or prolonged skin contact or contact with moist 
skin can result in moderate to severe bums and dermatitis. 
Contact with eyes cause eye irritation, blurred vision, 
redness, pain and severe tissue bums. 


6.1 General 

Personal protective equipment is not an adequate 
substitute for good, safe working conditions. Adequate 
ventilation and intelligent conduct on the part of employees 
is essential. One should keep firmly in mind that personal 
protective equipment protects only the person wearing it, 
and other unprotected workers in the area may be exposed 
to danger. 

6.2 Non-respiratory Equipment 

Personal protective equipment should include non- 
respiratory equipment like chemical safety goggles or a 
full face shield where splashing is possible. Overalls, safety 
shoes, gloves, lab coat or as appropriate should be worn 
by employees working in the area to avoid skin contact. 

6.3 Respiratory Equipment 

As there is a risk of exposure to chlorine, suitable 
respiratory protective devices should be used. For 
emergencies or instances where the exposure levels are

below electric fittings or fixtures. SBP bags should not be stored on dirt or damp 

7.1 Storage 

7.1.1 General Precautions SBP should be stored in a cool, dry and well 
ventilated ^rea. SBP can react vigorously and some times 
explosively with certain organic and inorganic materials 
(see 4.3), they should be kept away from it during storage. SBP may ignite or explode on storage. Traces of 
water may initiate reaction. It should be stored properly to 
avoid contact with heat, moisture, flames and sparks. This material is a scheduled poison. Foodstuffs 
should be stored away from it. Material should not be stored on wooden floors. Storage area should always be segregated from 
packing area. Storage area should be protected with approved 
fire hydrant system. 

7.1. L8 Storage area should be equipped with heat 
detectors for early detection of fire. Power supply to the storage area should be 
switched off after completion of work. No welding work should be carried out in vicinity 
of storage area. Smoking should be strictly prohibited in process 
and godown area. Boards displaying 'No Smoking' should 
be displayed in all areas and strict enforcement of the 
same should be ensured. The building shall havegood ventilation. In areas 
where natural ventilation is not possible, forced ventilation 
equipment should be installed. Since chlorine is used and stored in the 
premises for manufacture of SBP, safety code for chlorine 
(see IS 4263) should be strictly followed. 

7.1.2 Storage of SBP Bags SBP bags should be stored at a gap of around I m No combustible material like oily rags should be 
kept near storage area of SBP bags. SBP bags should be stored out of direct sunlight. 
7.1.3 Storage of SBP Drums SBP drums should be stored in cool, dry place and 
out of direct sunlight. The drums should be stored away from source of 
heat. The drums should be kept closed all the times. The drums should not be stored on dirt or damp
